Hi All,

I would like to schedule for an Oracle procedure in Linux crontab. First Is it possible to do it? if so it would be great if any one can help me to do the same.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Venkat

Venkat,
You have two options:
  • use the linux cron utility
  • use the (PL/SQL) supplied package:- DBMS_JOB


  • Since both options require a lot of explanation, I don't think
    a reply in this forum is a good way for you to learn how to
    implement the two options. And since there is already a lot of
    literature available that explains how to use the above two
    options, allow me to refer you to some of that literature.

    For using the "cron" utility, perhaps read the "crontab" man page
    on your linux computer.

    For DBMS_JOB, look up the Oracle documentation at the Tahiti Web site.

    Good Luck,
    Avi.
